MINOLTA 16mm CAMERAS From their modest beginnings after World War Two, the Minolta subminiature format rose to become the most popular Japanese 16mm, still-picture manufacturer and helped Minolta establish itself as a major player in the photographic industry. The revolutionary Minolta cassette is the closest the subminiature market ever came to a "standard" 16mm film format and it was copied by many other camera companies, even outside of Japan. With the exception of the Minox cassette, it is the long-distance runner of the submini world; Minolta manufactured and sold its film cassettes until 1995, and replicas are still being made in the Ukraine and China (?), today. Fortunately, even the older cameras are still very useable since the Minolta cassette used 16mm film (which is still readily available), and they did not require perforations in the film to advance the film. They are very easy to reload. Check out The Darkroom for details.
The original Minolta 16mm camera was designed by the Konan Institute and used the original Konan cassette. This cassette will not fit in any of the Minolta cameras -- or at least cameras with the Minolta name, since Minolta ended up making many cameras with the Konan name. Basically, Minolta bought-out Konan. When Minolta took over, they redesigned the cassette using black felt for the light trap. There were actually several versions, nearly identical. The first was metal, but this was soon replaced with the more standard plastic type -- of which there were several versions. Minolta made two plastic models, identical except that on the second version a notch or indentation was cut into the cassette bridge to make it easier to break off the film take-up lobe for processing purposes. (If you have the newer version it's a good idea to fill in the notch with a little epoxy to make it last longer.) To complicate matters even more, similar cassettes were made by other companies, such as Yashica (which sold a camera that used the Minolta cassette), a company called FR (which sold the film and offered processing), and others. The Minolta cassettes are fairly easy to find today, and will fit in all of the cameras on this list. They will NOT fit in Mica and Konan.cameras. To top it all off, there are even bogus Minolta cassettes being sold. For more information check out the NEWSTAND.

Unless you have a lens collimator and other equipment necessary to ensure proper alignment when reassembling the lens, don't do it yourself. Take it to a camera shop and have a properly trained and equipped professional do it.

Is there an adapter for Tokina Rmc 1 3.5-4.5 35-135mm Zoom Lens to fit to panasonic gh2 m4/3?


Perhaps. Tokina makes lenses with a variety of mounts. If the lens already has an m4/3 mount then you won't need an adapter at all. Some Tokina lenses take the "universal" T-mount. In this case remove the current mount and put on an m4/3 mount. If it has some other fixed mount, m4/3 adapters are available for some of them. It all goes back to the mount already on the lens.

I have a Quantary zoom lens 28-90mm "for Minolta AF". It fits my Sony alpha350 camera, but the camera does not recognize it - says there is no lens. What's up?


Fitting is not always the solution. It is the software which recognises the hardware attachements. Either upgrade your camera software or use only the manufacturer recommended add ons. aqeelhafeez@hotmail.com

Minolta SLR Lens on Sony - Does it work.


As I understand it, Sony bought Minolta, lock, stock, and barrel. Theoretically the lenses should fit and may work on manual, but I'm very sure they will not totally work on sony digital cameras. I wouldn't even try to fit them as the autofocus system on the camera may be damaged.

Used on a Minolta Maxxum 800 si


Hello
The Minolta AF lens will fit and work on most of the Minolta AF bodies (it will depend on exactly what lens it is as to the compatibility), you will also find that it will fit and work with the new range of Sony
digital SLR camera bodies.

The Quantaray lenses are a little bit more difficult as Quantaray make lenses for several different types of camera body, it should mention on the lens what make the lens mount is for. If you post further information about the lenses it might help.

Unless you have extensive experience, this is best left to professionals. If you didn't spend much, then you could "learn" on it, but if it is something you really value...don't do it.
